Vulcan 2000 Oil Leak

Today I was on a ride and after riding for about an hour I noticed that there was oil leaking from the air cleaner. This is the second time that this has happened on this bike in 2 months. The last time that this occured I had it towed to the shop and I was told that there was too much oil in the engin that the overflow tube allowed oil the go the the air cleaner. The dealer fixed the problem olny to find out that I happened again today. I am not sure why this is happening. Any help or information would be appreciated.

oil in the air filter

I'm very familiar with this dillema . Working with Tom the head mechanic @ Brenny's motorcycle .We kept removing oil with a turkey baster and a little peice of tubing then ride it hard for a little while 20 miles a least then go back and check it again mine went from 4.9 qts down to about 4.26 with the bike sitting level if you are by yourself a 4x4 with a 2x4 works real well . Good luck
